Angular version 5.2.0 has been released. This is a minor release that is a drop-in replacement for 5.1 containing many bugfixes.

What’s new?

  • Improved type checking for templates
    We’ve added fullTemplateTypeCheck as an angularCompilerOption that uses TypeScript to validate binding expressions in your templates. We recommend you enable this flag, as it will become the default in a future major release. Learn more about the various compiler options supported in Angular.
  • Support for TypeScript 2.6
    Angular now supports TypeScript 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6. Check out some of the new features in TypeScript 2.6.
  • Improved Router Param & Data Inheritance
    Previously, nested routes would only inherit parameters and data from parent routes if the parent route did not have a component set. Now paramsInheritanceStrategy can be set to always, meaning child routes will have access to all ancestor parameters and data. Thanks to Zaven Muradyan for this contribution.
